My gorgeous little niece Ava is in the ICU at the moment. It's not the first time she's been there, but it certainly doesn't make it any easier.

Ava is having problems with her lungs and without the help of a CPAP machine she does not get enough oxygen as she breathes.

The ICU isn't a fun place for a five year old girl. Or for her Mummy. Or for her 7 month old sister. But that's where they are. They've been there for 4 days now and no-one knows how long it will be before she gets to come home. The 2nd of June is Ava's 6th birthday and more than anything she wants to be home before then. This is going to be the first year she has been at school on the actual day of her birthday and she's so excited about getting her special birthday award.

If you pray please keep Ava in your prayers, if not please send lots of love and positive thoughts her way.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums and Mums-to-be out there.

My day has been lovely so far. Pancakes for breakfast, cuddles and playtime with Max. A trip to the park planned for after nap-time. And skyping with my Mum and Sean's Mum a little later on.

I hope you each have a perfect day too.

Wardrobe Inspiration

For months now I have been meaning to put together mood/inspiration boards for each room in my house. I figure if I plan things out, I'll be more likely to buy things I will love for a long time.

This morning I finally got around to doing a board up for my walk in wardrobe (got to start somewhere!). My plan is to make it a hidden girly room. Pinks, white, cream, some french inspiration and lots of room for shoes.

Now, can anyone tell me where I find the wardrobe makeover money?

I have a new obsession (yes, truly I am obsessed). It's pinterest.

If you haven't been and checked it out yet I highly recommend that you drop what ever you are doing and go straight there (right now!).

Basically it's an online pinboard where you can save all of your favourite images and ideas. You can repin things that other people like, or pin images straight from websites. The best part, links are saved with the images so you never have to worry about forgetting where you got the imaged from. I love it!!

Look me up once you've signed up - click here - I promise we will be pinterest besties :)

Happy pinning!
